1. This was the answer Job gave to Yahweh:

2. I know that you are all powerful; no plan of yours can be thwarted.

3. I spoke of things I did not understand, too wonderful for me to know.

5. My ears had heard of you, but now my eyes have seen you.

6. Therefore I retract all I have said, and in dust and ashes I repent.

7. After Yahweh had spoken to Job, he turned to Eliphaz the Temanite, "I am angry with you and your two friends because you have not spoken of me rightly, as has my servant Job.

8. Now, take seven bulls and seven rams, go to my servant Job, offer a holocaust for yourselves and let him pray for you. I will accept his prayer and excuse your folly in not speaking of me properly as my servant Job has done."

9. Then Eliphaz the Temanite, Bildad the Shuhite, and Zophar the Naamathite went and did as Yahweh had ordered. Yahweh accepted Job's intercession.

10. After Job had prayed for his friends, Yahweh restored his fortunes, giving him twice as much as he had before.

11. All his brothers and sisters and his former friends came to his house and dined with him. They showed him sympathy and comforted him for all the evil that Yahweh had brought to him. Each of them gave him a silver coin and a gold ring.

12. Yahweh blessed Job's latter days much more than his earlier ones. He came to own fourteen thousand sheep, six thousand camels, a thousand yoke of oxen, and a thousand she-donkeys.

13. He was also blessed with seven sons and three daughters.

14. The first daughter he named Dove, the second Cinnamon, and the third Bottle of Perfume.

15. Nowhere in the land was there found any woman who could compare in beauty with Job's daughters. Their father granted them an inheritance along with their brothers.

16. Job lived a hundred and forty years; he saw his children and their children to the fourth generation.

17. He died old and full of years.
